I'll try to knock it out soon. Been busy with my real job + my other project. I'll have to install Lokinet in a VM since I no longer run it locally since it causes DNS leaks when you're connected to a VPN. I'll spin up a VM and see if it still does it. If not, I'll transfer the old config over so the site resolves again over the network.

Sorry, I kind of forgot about it to be honest. I'll take a stab at it now.

EDIT: Disregard. It's enough work right now keeping the I2P, Tor and Yggdrasil networks monitored, up and playing nicely, none of which require any DNS based modifications for resolving addresses over their respective networks. I may work up a solution that I'm more comfortable with using, but for now, I'm going to (possibly temporarily) stop promoting lokinet access / support. (IE remove it from the forum footer and update the wiki the reflect the change).

Texas' home defense laws are practically, "Fuck around and find out."

Refusal to adhere to non-lethal force or commands while trespassing when the trespasser knows you're armed allows for the use of deadly force. At night, I think it's just "assume every tresspasser is armed".

Plain clothes cops shouldn't be used too often.

It's sort of crazy to think that in this modern era of wireless devices that behind all of them is large scale fiber deployments. Literally countless miles of fiber running from city to city, town to town. Underground, underwater and spanning the ocean to connect continents together.

People don't often stop to think about the actual physical point to point networking involved. The younger generation thinks the internet is just 'wireless' and comes from a box in their living room or from their cellphone. Even crazier when you look at datacenters and the vast amount of energy it takes to keep servers online.

We're back up, again. Similar thing. Planned maintenance followed by me needing to be around to unlock the disks so that site is reachable. Full Disk Encryption is a blessing and a curse.

Let me know if the issue persists. The I2P site should be near clearnet speeds. It's a 0-hop tunnel since it's using the same clearnet server for the I2P site. I don't need to additional tunnel lengths to keep the site's origin anonymous since there is a public, clearnet version already available. So your I2P traffic to the site shouldn't be routed all over the network before being able to access the site. Should be pretty direct / fast.

While CNN is most certainly garbage, MSM in general and the advent of the 24/7 news cycle is nothing more than news entertainment. They all report the same thing, with only a slight variation in tone or what aspects of an event/story/whatever are emphasized to best cater to their slightly different audience than a different network reporting the same.

Whether you're on the right or you're on the left, MSM is cancer. The right hates CNN, the left hates Fox. Both are garbage.

Wasn't for sure to post this in /f/news or /f/clownworld . I always thought the "we want reparations for something none of us has ever experienced" thing was sort of a meme, but here we are.

I'm not sure how you'd even determine who would qualify. In America, many (the majority, I believe) of African Americans immigrated after the civil war.

Yeah, it's been down since I moved the site over to a new server.

I can't run Lokinet locally to test it out, because on Linux it wants to overwrite /etc/resolv.conf and change the nameserver to resolve .loki stuff. But what this does is cause DNS leaks with my VPN and cause Cloudflare to resolve clearnet stuff unless I change it back by hand. Got tired of fussing with it and just chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf so Lokinet couldn't overwrite it. This, in turn, broke my ability to access Lokinet.

If you want, I'll copy the old configuration over this weekend and if you're around you can tell me if it's working or not. Was just low on my priority list. We can coordinate in IRC2P since I see you around there a bit.
